Inspired by nature and made possible by technology, generative design is an example of augmenting traditional human creativity with the possibilities of modern computing systems.
The 3D Printed Steering Wheel project was focused on exploring and demonstrating the possibilities for various generative methods in the design of a specific product - a steering wheel. The premise was the use of multimaterial 3D printing in production of mass-personalized products.
The project was created within a doctoral study at the Institute of Industrial Design at FA STU in Bratislava. It was supported by VW Group Future Center Europe. The objects were largely created in Grasshopper, with add-ons like Millipede, Anemone and Cocoon.
